Sodium carbonate is an inorganic compound made of Sodium and carbonic acid. In addition it is also well known as soda ash and washing soda. In terms of properties it is a white, odorless, hygroscopic, amorphous solid soluble in water and most solvents. It has formula Na2CO3 and its various hydrates. Sodium carbonate occurs naturally in arid regions. It is found in the form of deposits on locations where lakes evaporate. The sodium carbonate is also widely used by chemical industry for developing and manufacturing glass, detergents, sodium chemicals and carbonate chemicals.
They are largely used for various personal care products such foaming agents in toothpastes, which are used to increase the pH value temporarily. The demand of sodium carbonate is majorly driven by demand in water treatment uses, paper and pulp uses and chemical industry. However, it is hard to have disposal of wastes from the production process and there are stringent regulations and guidelines for effective waste management might hamper the market growth further adding to the concern. The ever expanding of industrial economies of region such as Asia Pacific, Latin America and Africa are supporting the demand and adding the opportunity for upcoming growth of pharmaceutical grade sodium carbonate. Sodium carbonate are also used as an additive in detergents owing to water softening property it has, sodium carbonate also prevents the detergent to bond with the strong salts thereby accelerating the growth of sodium carbonate market.
According to study, “Global Pharmaceutical Grade Sodium Carbonate Market Status (2015-2019) and Forecast (2020-2024) by Region, Product Type & End-Use” the key companies operating in market are Solvay SA, Novacarb (Novacap Group), Dr. Paul Lohmann GmbH KG, CIECH S.A., Natural Soda LLC, Jost Chemical Co., Tianjin Chengyuan Chemical Co., Ltd., Weifang Hongyuan Chemical Co., Ltd, Tronox Alkali Corporation.
The sodium carbonate market is further to be driven by the demand in areas of water treatment applications, paper and pulp applications. Some of the key industrial economies such as China, India, Japan, Thailand, Taiwan, Indonesia and South Korea which are major consumers of sodium carbonate. The sodium carbonate is also employed for the treatment of brine, coal and desulphurization of flue gas. The ever increasing demand of detergents and soaps further supporting the increase in demand from various industries such as textile, hotel, restaurant and others may the product demand.
The use and requirement of sodium carbonate have a major consumption in industries as well as households for removal water hardness and pH adjustment of the water. The sodium carbonate is further an essential ingredient added in the detergents and surfactants industry. In terms of the key product type market is segmented into fine, and coarse. Based on the application market is further segmented into API, Pharma excipients, personal care, and others. The sodium carbonate is used as an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) which is applied over issues associated to headache and indigestion. The use of sodium carbonate as an API is rising on a global scale, and is further anticipated to inject profits in the global sodium carbonate market.
Some of the key factors associated to stimulating disposal of wastes formed during the assembly process and strict regulation on effective waste management by government authorities are restraining the global pharmaceutical grade sodium carbonate market growth. However developing industrial economies over the regions like Asia Pacific, Latin America and MEA& Africa further supporting the lucrative opportunities for pharmaceutical grade sodium carbonate market.
